Even after the game was halted in the bottom of the 11th inning for a 41-minute rain delay, the two teams still could not manage to send a runner across the plate. That was, until a Denard Span walk-off single in the bottom half of the 15th inning gave the Twins a much-needed victory. In addition to his clutch hit, Span finished 4-for-8 from the plate to move his season average up to .287.
Minnesota reliever Anthony Swarzak picked up his first win of the season after throwing 15 pitches in the 15th, while Milwaukee's Tim Dillard was saddled with the loss after allowing multiple hits to open the frame. Back on track now after a four-game skid, the Twins will next shift their focus to a three-game interleague road series with the Pittsburgh Pirates, one of baseball's biggest surprises of 2012.
